Your wedding day will be packed with precious moments and everything you’ve heard is true: Your wedding day comes and goes so quickly.
We’re there for all the majestic moments of the day, but also look for the must-have photographs, which together create a complete memory of your wedding.
That’s why preparation is the key.
For every bride and groom, no matter how creative their wedding is, as a professional studio, need to deliver great looking group portraits.
So it’s time to start thinking about your shot list.
While we will guide you on the moments we absolutely plan on capturing, you should tell us who exactly should be posed for the group portraits that will be included in your wedding album.
Your wedding album is one thing you will have left once the day is done.
Here are some tips.
Keep It Short and Sweet.
Try to limit total number of group shots to 8 or even fewer.
Have Enough Time.
Our studio photographers can do group shots in about 30 minutes. In average it takes about 7-8 minutes per each group, so as you can see it soon adds up if you have 6-8 group portraits.
Let Them Help You.
Someone from your wedding party should be helping you and us arranging those groups. Someone who knows in advance when and where they will be needed to make group shots efficient and painless.
Not All Guests Want Attention.
Not all guests will want to have their photo taken. Just let us know if it’s ok for that particular guest to opt out.
Stick to the Plan.
This is why we ask for this list before your big day. Let’s do our homework and stick to that list.
Also, let’s have a backup plan for the location of the shots, in case it rains or the sun is too harsh on the day.
Best wishes for a happy planning and an amazing wedding.
